I was tightening bolts inside the vacuum chamber (these bolts can be loosened, but not removed) and I stripped one of them. Seeing that I can't remove it, what should be done?

If the other 2 bolts are okay apply a sealer RTV or permatex to the stripped bolt and run it in until the head makes contact just for sealing purposes.
